Pen & Ink go together like bread and butter, You can’t have one without the other! Sounds like a familiar tune, but so true. Which pen and which ink will dance together on the page tonight? It depends.
Pen nib: needlepoint hairline, broad, wide, flexible, fixed? Ink: juicy wet, dry, ink viscosity, color, opaque, waterproof, oak gall, sumi, acrylic? Paper: slick, smooth, rough, recycled, toothed? Throw in other factors, such as writing speed, writing pressure, and then there’s the calligrapher!
And then, when all is said and done, when the right ink is paired with a writing tool to deposit an inked line that sits up on exquisite paper, glistening – it is as if all the stars are aligned in the night sky. It is writing bliss!
